POT Gift Cards
Our gift cards can be used at either location AND on any services or POTSHOP items. They are applicable to every class, workshop, and service we offer. Not applicable to The POTluck Initiative donations.
Our mission is to cultivate pleasure, community, and new career paths in pottery for BIPOC communities while breaking opportunity cycles in our industry. We felt a need for spaces that feel fun and empowering for those marginalized in most ceramic spaces, namely people of color, the queer community, and the youth. Our belief in the transformative effects of fun and pleasure greatly inform our intentional and unique programming. We also believe in making pottery accessible to our communities and do so through our non-profit arm, The POTluck Initiative. We offer scholarships for students and members, free workshops for our communities, work-trade programs, and career training. Arts degrees can be expensive and a privilege to attain, so we do not require them for hiring and are willing to train persons who do not have degrees but display interest, skill, and love for pottery.
